Time now the biggest enemy of bill allowing legislative oversight of carbon emissions standards compliance

An amendment to House Bill 2354, which would allow for legislative oversight of the Department of Environmental Protection’s compliance plan for the EPA’s new carbon emissions standards, might jeopardize the legislation.

Since the amendment was added in the Senate Appropriations Committee, the legislation will have to go back to the House for concurrence.

With only three remaining scheduled session days, only two of which are at this time anticipated to deal with substantive issues, supporters of the bill are worried there will not be enough time to get the bill to the governor’s desk.
